Look Up and Live
There are storms raging all around.
In our own lives and it’s sometimes.
Hard to stand
When you’re at your lowest
And feel you can’t make it through.
Just look up and live!
I know it gets hard and the hills are hard to climb.
I know the path taken can be obstacle filled.
It’s hard to keep moving
When you’re fighting against God’s will.
But, baby, just look up and live!
No one but Jesus has it all together.
It’s okay to cry in stormy weather.
Weeping endures for a night
But joy comes in the morning’s bright light.
You might feel you can’t make it and want to give up,
But just look up and live!
Look to the hills from whence cometh your help.
Look the ONE who never slumbers or sleeps.
Look to the One who is your keeper and shade.
Look to the One who sits high and looks low.
Look up and live!
His eye is on the sparrow, He said not to worry.
Cast your cares upon Him.
Don’t you know He died for man’s sins?
So when you’re feeling doubt or just feeling low,
When you feel there is nowhere else to go
Baby, just look up and live!
